successful second term than their first word james madison and andrew jackson. the following is an accounting of the president's elected to a second term and the reason for those of experience failed or troubled second terms. four failed because of a war that seemed unwinnable war for lack of preparedness. jefferson, truman, johnson and. were the four. also four failed because of economic crisis or failure to act to deter such a crisis. jefferson, cleveland, coolidge, franklin roosevelt, the 37 downturn and george bush. eight who failed due to their inability to lead congress were jefferson, monroe, grant, wilson, truman, johnson, nixon and george bush. two failed due to who boris. franklin roosevelt and richard nixon. four who did not effectively communicate their agendas or initiatives were jefferson, monroe, grand and cleveland. the dominant force of failure for a second term presidents has been there in the ability to successfully to work with congress. lee eight second term presidents have face trouble their second term due directly to the fight between congress and the white house. havi

in the first election. andrew jackson won more popular votes than he did but jefferson didn't have a majority in congress. so, they -- the presidential race was thrown into the house of representatives and the probability of john quincy adams despised jackson and was terrified of the possibility of the presidency he said jefferson was a barbarian who could hardly run his name and so he got together with henry clay who had the votes in the presidential election and promised him to be the secretary of state and they pull their votes together in the house of representatives and that's how he was elected to the presidency. in the next election by then, jackson had gone around the country dillinger popular maturities and getting along changed from state to state to state and which providing for the universal right male suffrage which took the votes out of the hands of property owners and gave it to the barbarians as john quincy adams might say. >> john quincy adams deal with clay and 1824 was that ethical by the standards of those days retrospectively by our standards? >> is certainly was in those

in one sense that people may not be familiar with. he's the first american president since andrew jackson to win a re-election with a lower popular vote percentage than he won his first time. we don't do that in american politics. when we re-elect a president, we typically embrace that president even more strongly than the first time. the president's not in that political category, but he has won re-election and he has a mandate based on what he makes of it. many political scientists say the idea of a mandate is basically fiction. >> we learned something about the shape of the electorate. in 2008, the obama campaign decided they were going to build a coalition out of young voters, minority voters and college-educated women. they did that again. they did it in a slightly different ways and different regions of the country, but the president get a smaller share of the white vote, but the white vote shrunk, and he got a larger share -- well, the white vote actually stayed about the same, it's been shrinking since 1990, '92, but he got a larger vote of the minority vote, hispanics and african

times by the trees what did i do to help the people of michael jackson. the president has taken on acorn show. this has really been no effort by this administration to help the people when they were underattack. this administration ignored many warnings coming from benghazi, libya about the state of play. they have been telling us and the entire world al-qaeda has been dismantled. it was clear to anybody who was listening that was peaking benghazi over. during the apack, he said he reported people to help those in libya to come to the aid of the people in libya. not one person came to his aid. did he ignore the order or never make the order? the person i blame above all else is president barack obama. he has oversold the dismantling of ail quaid. he spiked the ball when bin laden was killed and created a seps of security that doesn't exist and he let these poor people in libya go into a death trap and didn't do anything about it. >> greta: but go back to my point that once all that happened and these and the americans want to know what happened to the murder -- any murder investigation i

jackson series, read: time. at the end of the summer, jack was a bright guy, but was not a big reader and a good-looking kid -- his mother must be very, very pretty. but by the end of the summer, he had read a dozen books. about nine of them he liked a lot in his reading skills have gone to remove. so he went from eight yourself or he didn't like to read two when he took his sats, which they take, he got 800 reading, which is the highest score you can get. so that's what can happen. it's unimportant whether they get 800 or harvard or vanderbilt , the support they get through high school and they have options when they get out. so yeah, mitch, where are you? , now, we're going to shoot the breeze and awesome question. what happened with that movie, et cetera, et cetera.

-degree murder, isn't the right call? joining me now is a former prosecutor, joe jackson and brian claypool, who is also a defense attorney. you tell me. they were down. he shot them. they were down and then he finished them off. how is that self-defense at that point? >> here is the problem. the law in minnesota as it states right now, says that if you are a homeowner and somebody breaks into your property without consent and they are going to commit a felony, you can kill that person. this law does not distinguish between whether there was a reasonable or immediate threat to the person who owns the property. there is no language in the statute that says that. so i would argue for byron smith. it is obviously a tragedy. but i would argue that the way the law as stated, he has absolute immunity to being prosecuted for second-degree murder and i would request an immunity hearing to have the charges dropped. megyn: so if that's true, as soon as they step foot in the house, they are dead. they can step foot in the house and no matter what happens, you can continue to shoot until you are sure that t
jackson jr. of illinois has actually been re-elected despite spending the last several months in the mayo clinic. >> that's solidly democratic. but jesse jackson jr. who has won re-election in illinois has not been seen in congress since early this summer. i mean, he left for health reasons. he has not campaigned at all. and as you see, solid lead, democratic district, re-electing a democratic congressman that has been missing in action for almost half a year. >> so many of those congressional seats are so safe. >> i want to go back out and see if we can put upside by side, jake tapper and david muir. i think it's interesting to be in each of those rooms right now. feeling the mood of the room. jake tapper, if you can hear me right now, i have a question i wanted to ask. at one point, president obama's campaign but an exclamation point after "forward." it was just "forward" and then an exclamation point. when did they decide that was the right message for them? >> well, they went back and forth about a lot of different messages. and they ultimately decided "forward." and then there was so
's a test. >> -- that is a test. >> jackson? >> i guess it would be jackson. >> i think, yeah. one of five. >> it's a very big deal. it seems to me now -- and this goes to what john was just talking about -- how human they are. he is tired. it is incredibly emotional. so the question, then, is in this moment, does he become more open to humility, something mike's been talking about for a couple of days. does he become the humble figure who says, i heard you even if you voted against me. and we sometimes forget, these are men who run around realizing that virtually one out of every two people he sees doesn't want him to have the job he's got. >> right. zloo which >> which is an emotionally wearing thing, it would seem to me. does he draw strength from this? what does he learn from the first four years? and how long does this season of reflection really last when it hits the cold reality of dealing with what's coming up in december? >> and that is the thing to remember here, andrea, that as jon said, about half the country voted against him. and yet his victory was overwhelming when it came
states. he is the first president since andrew jackson to be reelected to have a smaller share of the vote than when he won. at this point, he is tied with george w. bush for the narrowest margin of victory ever for is successfully reelected president. we are a very divided country. demography gives democrats an opportunity to build a majority coalition. they have won the popular vote five out of six presidential elections. it is a real challenge in executing the opportunity that the democratic -- demographic change provides. the campaign showed the weakness of both sides been the republicans are unable to win 20% of minorities. both parties are looking at structural challenges in who they speak to them back the chance that obama had to build a robust coalition was not realised, but demography still gives democrats an edge on the presidential level. >> i've focused very heavily on young voters. it has been my personal crusade to figure out how the right can win more young voters back onto our site. in 2008, it was an historic election. barack obama won young voters by 34 points

jesse jackson jr. reelected. our next call comes from nashville, tennessee. this is the jacob. caller: thank you for receiving my call. i voted for jill stein. i feel both parties are very short sighted as far as the future of the planet. it is proven by the flooding and so forth. if we do not get into sustainable thinking, then all of this is basically a moot question. also, at each individual has their own responsibility to change their lifestyle so that they do not get sick. it is a two edged sword. corporations will always trump the environment for short-term gains. for example, the promotion of soft drinks. all of these things are killing us, and it is an economic factor. therefore, i am relieved that obama got in, the lesser of two evils thing, but i definitely feel like we are sure-sided. host: have you looked on line to total votell stein's take was? caller: i have not looked. i am sure it is less than 1%. the thing about third parties it is they can have an influence, and if each of us raises consciousness, that could change things. host: as we mentioned earlier, there is a c
since and jackson to be reelected with fewer votes than he got the first time. he will win with low 300 electoral votes. that is hardly a landslide. it is his mandate? -- what is te?is manda he did say, "elect me because that other guy is really scummy." he is overseeing a polarized electorate. we are a very clean the electorate. in walks president obama who now has to -- now has a second chance to fill the promises of his first election, which were to forge a consensus across the aisle to solve the big problems in this country. the election was too much about the small things. >> a stark reminder of the present cost challenge going forward. he won independence in 2008 but he lost them last night. he got out democrats. the center of this country preferred romney. >> the center of the country is tired of the status quo and voted for the status quo. we have the same ruling structure. >> mitt romney did not present a tempting alternative, as beth put it in one of her stories. one place that will start is the republican primaries. that was an interesting process this year with interesting p
. -- i want to point out this story from cbs news. "jesse jackson jr. has not yet pleaded guilty to the legend misuse of campaign funds, but cbs chicago reports that the congressman's lawyer and criminal defense attorney is negotiating with several governments a plea deal that will likely be reached by the end of the year. now i want to go to cathy, from st. petersburg, florida, on the subject of the resignation of general petraeus. cathy is on the democratic line this morning. caller: i cannot believe his react -- cannot believe this reaction. he is not just a regular soldier having a fling, he is the head of the cia. this woman, broadwell, ok, she is a harvard graduate, west point graduate. he was very impressed with her, sleeping with her, god knows what he told her. she sent his e-mail, his click to another woman. ok, she has the judgment and is repulse of now. does this not make you wonder, what the heck? host: what do you think this does to the generals legacy after his work in afghanistan and iraq? did we lose you? all right, we will go to lisa, then, from arizona, on the

mitt romney, nick saban and phil jackson have all had some blows dealt to them this week, i've just got the fever. so to see the new england patriots go down as well will just be too much for words for me. >> well, that's just hateful. >> i know. hey, that's part of what sports is. i've got to say what i'm most excited about is the resurgence of adrian peterson. nobody is talking about this enough. i was at fedex field last year when adrian peterson's knee was turned into coleslaw. this was last christmas. it was a one-year rehab. he is leading a very mediocre nfl team, the vikings, into the playoffs. an amazing running back. he is doing in-season rehab on his knee while he's leading the nfl in rushing. no one's ever seen anything like it before. and to see him come back stronger than ever is a sight to behold. >> and who's on his way to being coach of the year? >> oh, rex ryan. no, i'm just kidding. not really. i mean, i do think you've got to look at -- it's a really good question. i think that mike smith with the falcons. >> you have no idea, do you? >> i just didn't hear it in your
winfrey an, jesse jackson. you're talking earlier you're talk img this coalition, this new coalition in the democratic party. i think it says something not just to the republican party but perhaps the rest of america. i was talking earlier to mark who is the head of the urban league, he made the point of this coalition is becoming more mature. we talk about this coalition as young voters of women of minorities, african americans and hispanics. he makes a point, not only simply the republican party takes notice but perhaps the rest of america, corporate america could take some notice that america is changing. and perhaps not just the republican party but other organizations need to look at diversity in a different bay because yo --in different way. you see from this audience they won a tough race. they are relieved of this. there seems to be an expectation of this crowd that this is the direction america is going in. there's a level of confidence you see in this crowd in chicago that four years ago was just excitement that they won. the second time it happens people think okay we're o

, the first re-elected president since andrew jackson in 1832 to win a smaller share of the popular vote in the first re-election than he did initially. when you look at it as the margin between him and mitt romney, right now is at 2.4 percentage points which would tie george w. bush in 2004 as the narrowest margin of victory in the popular vote ever for successfully re-elected president. which says something about the durability of the divisions in our country at the time. >> how divided our country really is. i want to show our viewers a map, real quick. so, this is something that you coin back in 2009, if i'm correct. you call it the blue wall. tell us what you mean by that and what does it show and tell us? >> this is another big part of the story. there are now 18 states. the 18 states of the blue wall have voted democratic in every presidential election since 1992. six straight times. that is the most states democrats have won that often ever, since the formation of the modern party system in 1828. what that means unless republicans can break into this, can kind of breach the blue
of the vote declined as this county today, 45-56th overall first president since andrew jackson to be reelected in his first reelection, first elected president of the smaller share of the vote in his reelection. and, of course, at this point he was tied with george w. bush, although johnson, for the narrowest margin of victory ever for successfully reelected president all that tells us i think is that we are a very divided country to obama, demography gives democrats an opportunity to build a majority coalition that will have some legs. they have won the popular vote five of six election to the difficulty in holding white voters while in office is something i think is a real challenge in executing the opportunity that demographic change provides. i mean, two things are remarkable, that in many ways this campaign shows the weakness of both sides, that republicans are unable to win even 20% of minorities, and a sitting democratic president could not even 40% of whites. both parties are looking and structural challenges into the state to come and the chance that obama had still a
